A Woman's Song

awoken by  woman's Song 

how it overwhelmed me 

overtook me 

upended me 

tortured me 


I tried to roll back the sea 

the tide rolled in

it didn't care 


merciless love 

inspired silent oaths of fate 

there are things I knew as 

a child 

that are now just out of reach 

the memories come in dreams 

only to disappear when I awake 

but in those dreams ....


something so profound 

that there is only before and after 

a Woman's Song? 

If only I could remember...
